Paramount Moving Forward On A QUIET PLACE Sequel

A Quiet Place

One of the biggest hits of the year so far has been actor/director John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place. Produced for a mere $17 million, the science-fiction thriller has brought in more than $213 million at the worldwide box office, $134.8 million of that from North America alone.

So it comes as no surprise today that Paramount chairman-CEO Jim Gianopulos announced today at CinemaCon in Las Vegas that the studio was moving forward with a sequel. Paramount has been a bit starved for hits lately, so it was only a matter of time before they were to announce a follow up.

In the film, Krasinski stars with his real wife Emily Blunt as a couple who must live in silence to protect their two children from monsters attracted by noise.

Gianopulos stated “We’re already working with these guys on a sequel,” so presumably he meant Krisinski and A Quiet Place screenwriters Bryan Woods and Scott Beck. Woods and Beck have previously stated that they had a number of ideas left over from the first film that they could explore in a second film.

A Quiet Place debuted three weeks ago at the number one spot at the box office, surpassing tracking expectations to earn $50 million. This past weekend the film was number 1 at the box office, rising backup to the top spot after being bumped to number 2 by the Dwayne Johnson action pic Rampage.
